My wife and I just completed a cruise between Australia and New Zealand on the Rhapsody. Although we have been on several other Royal C. cruises, we were EXTREMELY disappointed with the food on this particular cruise. All fish dishes were dry and tasteless. All meat dishes were tough and chewy. All pasta dishes were overcooked and sauces were tasteless. It didn't matter whether you were in the dining room or in the Windjammer lounge. It was all barely edible. The last evening was so bad, we simply skipped dinner altogether. I have been told that this could have been a problem with the chef. I don't know who ours was but hopefully you will have a different one when the ship repositions to Alaska for the summer.
